He once shared, “Dati kapag nagdadasal ako doon, ‘bigyan niyo lang po ako ng trabaho, kahit ano, kahit hindi niyo na ako patulugin. Tapos binigay niya ang lahat.”

She would consistently pray for her wellness and ask for some blessings. After many singing contests, she finally struck gold and made a name for herself. But, she believed that her mother’s recovery was her biggest blessing from the Black Nazarene.

The singer turned actress’ most memorable procession was in 2013 when she was able to ride along the image’s carrier. She said, “Araw-araw po akong pumupunta doon pagkagaling ko ng Heart Center sa ospital ng mama ko. Naniniwala po talaga ako na nagmilagro ang Poong Nazareno dahil binigyan niya ng pangalawang buhay ang mama ko.

The comedian tries his best to attend the procession every year to give thanks for all the blessings and their family receives. He said, “Bakit ba ako nakaipon? Kasi kapag may nagkaroon ng malubha sa pamilya mo, ubos agad ang ipon mo. So 'yun ang lagi naming dalangin sa Black Nazarene na sana walang mawawala taon-taon, bagkus may madadagdag pa.”
